The Missing Earl and Other New Adventures
N. M Scott
The great detective returns!
In this beautifully crafted homage to Conan Doyle's greatest creation, N.M. Scott presents eight brand-new cases for the incomparable Sherlock Holmes and his trusty sidekick Dr John Watson.
On reviewing his case notes from over the years, Dr Watson once again sets pen to paper to record, among others, the mysterious case of the 'Haversham Jackdaw' in which a burglary is committed by apparently impossible means.
'The "Ring of Stones'" leads the duo to Salisbury Plain, where an investigation into a missing girl turns into something far more sinister and deadly, and in 'The Silver Button' Holmes finds his powers of deduction put to the ultimate test in his attempt to save a man from the gallows.
Written with wit and style, these stories plunge the reader once more into the murky depths of Victorian criminology, and will prove a delight to all Holmes fans, ever thirsty for more adventures from Dr Watson's voluminous case book.
N.M. Scott was born and educated in south London, but then moved to the Sussex coast where he now lives and writes in Rottingdean. He maintains a lifelong interest in the history of transport, along with church architecture and, of course, the 'Canon' of Sherlock Holmes.
